NOVEMBER FAVORITES 2015

jueves, 3 de diciembre de 2015

I am sorry I have been gone for a complete month, but things got chaotic. I was stressed as I had never been before since many things happened in life, and school wasn’t helping, then my computer decided that dying was a good thing to do, but now I am back! Or at least I’ll try.

Onto happier things, (I know everyone says this, but) I can’t believe eleven months have passed; it’s December now, my favorite month, but I couldn’t skip on my November faves. This month, my makeup has been pretty minimal and I have focused on enhancing my natural features, these are some of my favorite products. 

Día De Muertos

miércoles, 4 de noviembre de 2015

As many of you know, the Day of the Dead has recently passed. It is a huge celebration in my country, the day we chose to remember and celebrate our loved ones that have gone too soon. Even if we remember them every day, this day is special, mostly because we remember them music, parties, laughs, amazing food and a great time, with the happiness they deserved.

New Life & New Hair

viernes, 30 de octubre de 2015

So last week I went to my cousin's baby shower, she's having a baby boy and the family couldn't be more excited (I'm not, though, does that make me a bad person?). The party was really nice, it started pretty early in the morning, they even gave us coffee. All the candy was dreamy and I ate more that I would've wanted. I also did my hair again, I loved the silver hair but it was so hard to mantain that I just couldn't keep with it, also had most of my hair cut off, since it was super damaged. Red and black were my first options, and I chose red because it is easier to go from red to black than from black to red. Anyway, I'm leaving here some pictures of the baby shower, some of them are diabetes mellitus worthy, I hope you enjoy them!

Black Diamonds Eau de Toilette

lunes, 26 de octubre de 2015

Black Diamonds is a perfume from Mary Kay. I got this while I was in the search for a more mature, night time appropriate scent and I thought the bottle was pretty different and immediately caught my eye with the black and the pink details. Also, this was pretty inexpensive, so I thought this could open my way into more mature and sophisticated scents.

At Home Keratin Treatment: Aphogee

martes, 20 de octubre de 2015

I remember watching a video about taking care of extremely damaged hair and the girl using a white and purple deep conditioner, so when I went to Sally asking for the best one the had and she handled me the same one, I was quite surprised. I am talking about the Aphogee Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor (not the protein treatment!) and it has been a savior for my hair.

Big Bear Adventure

domingo, 18 de octubre de 2015

Three years ago I went with my family to Big Bear Mountain, California. Needless to say, I was quite fascinated by the outrageous beauty of the place. I live 30 minutes by the coast and if you want to visit the mountains, you have to do almost 15 hours of travel. As an introvert, I prefer mountains and cold climates better than the beach, so when I went to the United States to visit my family, we decided to go there.  It was the mid of summer, still, it was a little cooler than the usual Cali weather. I would have loved to be there on winter, since I have never seen the snow before.  

Versatile Blogger Award

viernes, 16 de octubre de 2015

So, I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by the gorgeus Kay (http://shoesandglitter.blogspot.co.uk), be sure to check her out, her blog is amazing! I couldn’t be more excited, it makes me so grateful to know that people read and like my blog, you don’t know how much it means to me, especially being just a random girl from the remotest corner of the world who doesn’t even speak English. At first I thought this would be a disaster, but it hasn’t (yet), I wub all of you!

Fall Scents

viernes, 9 de octubre de 2015


Our favorite time of the year has come and we all seem to be celebrating it. Fall and winter are my favorite seasons, because of the weather, the makeup, the fashion and all the scents. Here are some of my favorite perfumes for this time of the year, some of them are my all-time favorites and I use them in spring and summer also.

SEPTEMBER FAVORITES 2015

domingo, 4 de octubre de 2015

This month has been a little chaotic for me and to be honest, I haven’t had enough time to think a lot about my makeup, so my favorites this time are mostly things that I have always enjoyed and now, I am reaching for more for their versatility.

STUDY TIPS FROM AN ACTUAL STUDENT | COLLEGE ADVICE

miércoles, 30 de septiembre de 2015


One of the reasons I have been a little absent is that I am starting my course finals soon. I have tried a million study techniques and read other million study tips posts and not many have been helpful. These are some of the tips that have actually worked the best for me, I know everyone has a different way of learning, but I hope these can make it a little easier. 

Project 10 Pan

sábado, 26 de septiembre de 2015

Now that I started blogging about the things I buy and about other stuff I already have, I realized that I have a shopping problem. That’s why I decided to start the famous Project 10 Pan: I won’t be buying any new products until I finish 10 I already have. I chose products that I like, but for some reason I just don’t use and are sitting on my vanity without being touched. These are the products I chose:

L.A. GIRL PRO PRIMER REVIEW

jueves, 24 de septiembre de 2015

Since my Nyx Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk melted everywhere, I have been looking for another white base for my eyeshadows. I saw a video of ahitsrosa using this and I decided to get it. I got it for $3 USD or something like that. I chose the white shade, but there’s also a skin toned one.

sunny fall | makeup look

martes, 22 de septiembre de 2015

I can’t wait anymore for fall and winter, I’m over the hot weather and I’m pretty excited about the fashion and beauty trends, so I decided to do this look the other day, wearing a fall-ish lip, which has been my favorite lately, and some bronzy skin, in honor of the summer that isn't over yet. 

SheIn Wishlist

sábado, 19 de septiembre de 2015

After a long time, and a bad online shopping experience, I decided to start looking on the interwebz for some clothing pieces I would like for this fall. The first place I went to was SheIn, and I found many pieces I would love to buy.

PRODUCT RECYCLING | PART 1

viernes, 18 de septiembre de 2015


Today I’m going to talk about products that I don’t necessarily love for what they are supposed to do, but I like for other purposes. It is always frustrating when you have so much hope for one product and it disappoints you, but I always try to take the best out of everything I buy and here a some of my favorite recycled products.

THE RED HAUL

martes, 15 de septiembre de 2015


Everything about this haul was a mere accident. Yesterday, we had a huge blackout where I live and taking a nap without a fan in this 40°C weather isn’t the easiest thing, so I went to the mall to get some AC. Also, I bought everything in different stores, and it wasn’t until I came home and put everything on the table that I realized I had a theme going on.

EYEBROW PLUCKING HACK

viernes, 11 de septiembre de 2015

When I was younger I refused to pluck my eyebrows even if they were the messiest. And I still kind of do. I know a lot of us suffer when we do it just because it is so painful, and it doesn’t matter how often I do it, I just don’t seem to be getting used to it, so I will be sharing with you a trick I found by accident.

AUGUST FAVORITES 2015

lunes, 31 de agosto de 2015


This month passed super slowly for me, I got back to school two weeks ago and started night shifts at the hospital and I have been tired all the time. I also got an eye surgery, everything turned out great but I haven’t been able to wear eye makeup at all, so my go-to makeup look has been some bold lips and messy eyebrows with a lot of highlighter.

5 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW | COLLEGE ADVICE

martes, 25 de agosto de 2015


I have been thinking a lot about what I have learned about college and what I would tell to my younger self and other people before starting school. I am not going to lie, some of those things I learned with a lot of tears. It can be stressful, but if you set your mind for what’s coming, everything will be easier, I promise. So I recollected some of the things that have helped me the most and I hope can help some of you.

MAYBELLINE HYDRA EXTREME REVIEW

viernes, 21 de agosto de 2015

Two weeks ago I found these lipsticks on the drugstore; they are the Maybelline Hydra Extreme lipsticks and I realized I had never pay attention to them before. The packaging wasn’t anything special but I was curious to try them since they were only about $4 USD.

They were really appealing since they claimed to be moisturizing, enriched with collagen and with SPF 15 which is really hard to find in a lipstick. I bought two shades, 705 Femme Fatale (red) and 805 Electric Pink, which is labeled as a Hydra Extreme Matte.

L.A. GIRL GLAZED LIP PAINT REVIEW

lunes, 17 de agosto de 2015

First of all, I’m sorry for being a little MIA, but life happened and I didn’t have enough time to post, but I’ll try to get back on track this week. Since school already started, I will try to post every other day at least.

Now, going into the product, the Glazed Lip Paints by L.A. Girl claim to have super intense color and extra glossy finish. The packaging looks really similar to the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks but they are different products, as the last ones have a satin finish. I mentioned them in my July Favorites and my Mini Haul.

EBAY MAKEUP FINDS | PART 1

sábado, 15 de agosto de 2015

If you are on a budget and need some makeup, I really recommend searching on ebay. You can find makeup for really cheap and there are some products with excellent quality. Sometimes you see the images but don’t know what to expect, so I’m doing a review on some of the products I’ve tried and link to where you can get them. Spoiler alert: some of these are my favorites of all time.

MINI HAUL, DONUT LOVE AND SCHOOL

jueves, 13 de agosto de 2015

Today I went to school for one of my classes’ introduction. I am not going to lie, it was pretty hectic, the eight groups where in the auditorium and there wasn’t even space for all of us. The professor told us he was going to be really strict, that we are going to have a lot of work and everything is going to be done in teams, and I don’t know anybody from my class, and to be honest, I am kind of scared. School hasn’t even started and we already have homework. How does that even work?

10 facts about me

martes, 11 de agosto de 2015

One of my recent goals is to make my blog a little bit more personal. I realized I talk a lot about products and things I like but I barely talk about me, and probably nobody knows anything. I want to start doing blogposts about my days, some week reviews, story times and other things like that, so you can feel closer to me as I like feeling close to other bloggers. But first, let’s start with some facts about me.

half baked | makeup look

lunes, 10 de agosto de 2015

Today I had a small family reunion: my uncle and my aunt were celebrating their 60th anniversary of being married. We met at their house and had lunch and some drinks. Since the event was pretty casual, I decided to do a natural look, a little similar to my everyday makeup routine, but this time, I decided to take my Naked palette back from the dead.

My travel makeup bag.



This weekend I am visiting my family in a city 4 hours away from my home. Taking makeup with me on my trips has always been a challenge: I always end up with too much stuff, but this time, I tried really hard to narrow it only to the most essential and multipurpose products.

THE RED LIP EDIT


When it comes to red lipstick, I always tend to go for the darker, richer shades. When I want a brighter lip, I just go for the oranges. Even considering this shades are a little bit dark, I wear them almost every day, all year round.

KOREAN BEAUTY SAMPLES | PART 1

domingo, 9 de agosto de 2015

I am a Korean beauty enthusiast, a lot of my favorite products are from Korean brands, and as I buy everything online, my products come with a bunch of samples. My favorite website to buy Korean makeup and skincare is beautynetkorea, they always have great discounts and the shipping is really fast.

Maintaining silver hair + Shimmer Lights Shampoo review

miércoles, 5 de agosto de 2015

Silver and grey colors are extremely hard to mantain, and I do not want to go to the salon every two weeks to get my hair retouched, so I decided to try the Clairol Shimmer Lights shampoo everyone raves about.

The Reading Habits Tag

sábado, 1 de agosto de 2015

Hello, guys, I saw Beth from Live With B doing this tag and I could not resist to it. I have to admit, my reading habits have been getting really bad since I started going to college, but this vacations I decided do get them back on track.

JULY FAVORITES 2015

viernes, 31 de julio de 2015

July has been a long month and the weather has been acting crazy, some days we are at 42° C without any single cloud and other days we have really bad storms. It also is my birthday month and I got a lot of makeup, so for this month, I have a long list of favorites.  

Treating extremely bleach-damaged hair.

miércoles, 29 de julio de 2015


I am kind of obssessed with changing my hair color. As I went from dark brown, to  a light brown, to ombre tips that changed to blue, pink and purple, to dark red ombre hair, to Ariel red, to fully dark red again, to black, to dark purple and then, to silver.

As I tried to dye my hair gray it has gotten more damaged that it has ever been: it looks completely fried, but don’t be scared if you want your hair this color, it doesn’t have to be that way, in my case, it got so damaged because I had to get through a long process, because the first time it wasn’t light enough and it turned green, the second time I tried to get it, my roots didn’t absorb the color and the third time, I finally kind of got it, my roots look more of a silver blue color and the rest looks more like a grey green, but it looks ok and I’m definitely not touching it again.

MeNow (MN) long lasting lip gloss review.

domingo, 26 de julio de 2015


First of all, don’t get fooled by the name, because these are not lipglosses, they are liquid lipsticks that dry pretty matte. I got mine from ebay, they are sold by many sellers with different price ranges, but they never cost more than $2 USD.

Holika Holika: Wonder Drawing Browcara review.

lunes, 13 de julio de 2015


This is one of those brow gels that are super popular on the market right now.

I decided to try this one because of the price, which was pretty reasonable (I got mine from beautynetkorea for $5.95 USD) in the color #4 Dark Brown.

Etude House: Face conditioning cream [light]

sábado, 4 de julio de 2015

This is supposed to be used as a primer, after your skincare and before your makeup. It claims to be whitening, anti-wrinkle and balancing properties (from which I can’t really tell).

MeNow (MN) kiss proof soft lipstick review.

miércoles, 24 de junio de 2015

First,I will start with the claims of the product, so here they are: they claim to be a “powdery matte” liquid (?) lipsticks that instantly lift and hydrate lips, giving rich, creamy and longwearing color.

Tony Moly - Cat Chu Wink Tint review ♡

martes, 21 de abril de 2015

If you are into lip tints, Korean culture and makeup, you already know about this product.
This is obviously the mini size, as you can tell from it being extremely small, which is pretty enjoyable if you like cute little stuff.

Saving your dried gel eyeliner.

martes, 14 de abril de 2015

If you have some trouble with your expensive gel liner drying up super quickly as I had, I have the solution for you.

Top drugstore lippies: Orange.

lunes, 30 de marzo de 2015


1.      Nyx soft matte lip cream – Morocco.
I love the texture, it is easier to work with than a liquid lipstick, it has great staying power, it stains your lips, plus it smells like cake. It is a super bright orange with tons of red on it, great for the warmer seasons.



2.      Jordana matte lipstick – Tangerine Tango
This one has great staying power especially if used with a lipliner. I have to admit this lipstick might not be for everyone, it feels pretty drying on the lips, something I quiet like, but if you want to give this one a try and you hate that feeling, just use some lipbalm before applying it. 



3.      Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain – Rendezvous
Revlon’s balm stains are awesome and there is a great selection of colors, Rendezvous being my go-to lipstick. They last all day and if you need to retouch it, it still looks super fresh. I find that it only wears off when I eat or drink, but it fades to a really pretty orange stain that will last all day.



4.      Maybelline Color Elixir Ligloss – Mandarin Rapture
This is a sheer lipgloss with a little pigment on it. The smell is nice and fruity, but they do not have a great staying power, it only lasts one to two hours on me. This is my “I want to wear orange lipstick but I’m only going to school” kind of product and it is the only lipgloss I tolerate. The only two things I don’t like are that it feels kind of sticky and has some shimmer particles on it.



5.      Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids – Electric Orange
I don’t find this exact shade to be extremely pigmented but it has a nice color payoff, it has a glossy finish, it lasts a long time and I love how it looks like straight orange, instead of looking red. 


Which are your favorite orange lipsticks? I would love to know!
